Report on Book Group Meeting - Meeting, Monday, 14 November 2016

Our group met on 14th November to discuss the novel "A God in Ruins" by Kate Atkinson. We had a lively discussion with some members loving it and others disliking it. Those who disliked the book thought that it was dis-jointed, confusing and struggled to finish it. Other readers though that it was a very moving story beautifully written so very opposite points of view which always make our discussions more interesting. The novel is a "stand-alone" although there is a prequel "Life after Life" so perhaps those of us who just couldn't get immersed in the story might have been better had we read that first. Our scores ranged between 3 and 10 with an average score of 7.
We will meet next month to discuss ""The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins.
